Amanda Hocking's Biography

Member Info

Austin, Minnesota
Apr 2010

I live in Minnesota, and I spend a lot of time writing or reading. I drink a lot of Red Bull, and I usually don't go to bed before sun the comes up. I write Young Adult fiction, mostly Paranormal Romance. I've written 12 books, but the first few weren't that good. The series I'm promoting now is a vampire romance called My Blood Approves.

Upcoming Works

My Blood Approves and Fate - the first and second books in a young adult/paranormal romance series. I'm working on edits for the third book, as well as edits on the first book in another paranormal romance series, Switched.

I'm also writing a graphic novel about cannibal unicorns.

Interests & Hobbies

When I'm not writing, I'm a big movie buff and I love reading. I love 80's films, and I'm obsessed with John Hughes and Jim Henson. I have 6 tattoos, and I think unicorns are awesome, but not in a lame way. I make collages, and I'm the guitarist in a band called the Fraggin Aardvarks, but don't except to hear our music any time soon.  I love New Wave, but my favorite bands are blink 182, Silverchair, and Ryan Adams. My all-time favorite song is "Wonderwall" by Oasis, and my favorite movies are The Dark Knight, Labyrinth, My Own Private Idaho, and Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog.
